in wisconsin, nevada and colorado. karen travers, abc news, washington. >> by all measures this is still a tied race, that is still going to come down to a few key swing states, ohio. according to a "the new york times" poll we got yesterday, halloween. obama up by five points, 50-45 over romney in ohio. if, you know, like i said you don't know the impact of the storm. you've don't know, every poll says something different. so you don't know how it will play out. all eyes really, ohio and -- and florida. but then democrats could be losing ground, in what they thought were solid blue states including michigan and minnesota now. >> you would think though the folks in florida, with all of the hurricanes that they get, they want someone they can respond, vigorously and robustly to, to this type of tragedy. and with chris christie, vouching for president obama, i would think that that would have some sort of effect on, perhaps florida voters. >> you know what else, i hope i haven't, mentioned new orleans on the show this week. i think when the way you see politicians and your local leaders, even med
tonight. first nancy cordes with the president in the swing state of nevada. nancy. >> reporter: scott, white house aides are making sure we know the president is still conducting the federal response to sandy while he's on the road, making conference calls to governors in the storm area between rallies, but he's also make up for lost time, hitting nree or four states a day between now and the election. the president bounded back on to the campaign trail wearing a bomber jacket emblazoned with his title-- commander in chief. >> it is good to be back in green bay, wisconsin! hereporter: at each stop, he started by sharing lessons from hurricane sandy. >> when disaster strikes, we see america at its best. all the petty differences that consume us in normal times, all seem to melt away. >> reporter: both sides acknowledge the storm provided mr. obama with a valuable opportunity to show bipartisan leadership in the closing days of this race. republican new jersey governor and romney supporter chris christie repeatedly praised the president's performance and his compassion. >> you're go it
show you how different these states are when it comes to jobs. let's head out west first, nevada. the highest unemployment states of the tossup states, 11.8%. colorado closer to the national average at 8%. ohio, we just told you, 7% there, and in the unemployment been drifting lower. in florida, 8.7%. finally, iowa, my home state, it has one of the lowest jobless rates in the country at 5.2%. there the problem is finding workers. my friend poppy harlow is in des moines this morning. that seems like a good problem to have, finding workers. a 5.2% unemployment rate is enviable. >> reporter: it is. but it's not just about that top line number here. we were at a local small business, they make steel products, and the guy there told me, you know, i'm having a hard time finding the people with the skills to fill my jobs. at the same time, he is enormously concerned about the deficit, about government spending, and about debt. he told me if i ran my business the way the government runs its house, i'd be out of business, and that is what we hear across iowa, city to city, whether they le
nevada, wisconsin and here in ohio. all across this country, i'm going to take you on the road with both campaigns in just a minute. first, we have a very interesting election day from the state of new jersey that they tell you about now. it involves you of victims of super storm, sandy who cannot return home or have no home anymore. our joe johns is following us in washington on this story. but what he is following is that new jersey governor chris christy is now saying that people in the affected areas of new jersey, people affected by hurricane sandy can now vote electronically. they can vote by e-mail and they can vote by fax. it is an interesting turn. joe, what are you finding out about this? >> well, it's a very interesting turn, don. as you said, in response to the super storm, the governor has issued a directive. this is for misplaced voters that can submit ballot applications by e-mail or by fax to the county clerk. the clerk sends them a ballot and then they have to return that ballot by about 8:00 p.m. on tuesday. it sounds highly unusual. to some, it may sound off the wall.
obama will be campaigning, full time. full steam ahead going to wisconsin, colorado, nevada. three cities in ohio. and that's just thursday and friday. jake tapper, abc news, the white house. >>> romney was also striking a harmonious note as he hit the campaign trail in florida. refraining though from lashing out at the president. >> the latest abc news poll shows the race is still in a dead heat. romney replaced any criticism of his opponent with talk of unity. >> look, we can't go on the road we are on. we can't change course in america, if we keep on attacking each other. we have got to come together and get america on track again. >> romney hits the road today in another key battleground state. holding several events in virginia. and supporters there will be able to drop off donations for storm relief efforts. >> you listen to some analysts. i still think it's really unclear whether this helps or hurts the president. romney or the president. i think people really don't know. it is a tight race, the bottom line. but legitimate questions about people who have lost power, will the
. they have crossed the state line into arizona to buy tickets. powerball not played in california, nevada, utah, wyoming, mississippi, and alabama. >> imagine, california, huge state. imagine if they can get in the mix, the jackpot would be incredible. ooh. all that powerball jack pot, the topic of our facebook question yesterday. >> we wanted to know what would you do with all that prize money? vanessa said, buy a home where my family lives, donate to alzheimers research, help those who've helped me, help some homeless people, donate to a veterans home, feed hungry children. why don't you try solving world peace, too, vanessa. that is very altruistic of you. kudos. >> joseph, i'll be honest, put it in an offshore bank account, create a whole new identity for myself and live a hedonistic life of questionable morals and purchases and wouldn't feel guilty in the least. >> joseph we, should hang out one weekend. >> i would hang out with vanessa. another joseph says, paula and rob, i would have a smashing party with both of you as hosts and also i would buy each of you a new car of your choic

governors in nevada. they won election of 2010. susanna martinez who got rave reviews for the convention speech at the the republican national convention. you see the republican wing in congress being very, very white. a lot of males dominating the caucus. on the governor's side you have a lot of hispanic and indiana-american governor es showing the way. >> you make the point that four of the five women serving as governors in 2013 are republicans. you look at large majorities of african-americans. latino and asian americans voting democratic, the question may be how important for the gop's future are women and minority governors to the party, and they clearly have more at this point than actually the democrats do at that level? >> yeah, it's really remarkable when you look at the the governors and how they have a much more diversity and ethnicity and in gender. and it's a real model when you look at the the exit polling data showing how badly romney underperformed with female voters and how he just did terribly with hispanics and asian-americans. you look at -- if identity is going to b
romney all over virginia and the president, wisconsin, nevada, colorado, ohio, and all the swing states you might expect. his running-mate congressman paul ryan turning some of the western state in colorado, nevada, reno and vegas. president obama hitting the campaign trail in earnest after taking a break for three days because of hurricane sandy. he started his push in green bay, wisconsin. the president is on his way to vegas. then he will go to an event in boulder, colorado. head together all-important state of ohio. ed henry joins us live from vegas. he goes along for the right. that's where the president's next event will be in a few hours. >> reporter: you can feel the intensity. we reached the final stretch. the president's aides are describing this as the final five days of his last campaign. win or lose he's not going to run for office again. the president unveiling a new wardrobe and new message. you see him with that air force one bomber jacket that says commander-in-chief. he had a new message in terms of a closing argument. his aides say this will be his final pitch. he has
turned out had ohio, florida, nevada, colorado, some of those states gone for mitt romney. they're talking about the economy. they're talking the unemployment rate is 1% lower in those states that have gop governors. louisiana governor bobby jindal yesterday talked about the economy and the success the gop governors are having. >> you look at what other governors are doing to lower their unemployment rates. for example, john kasich in ohio and rick scott in florida, they're improving the private sector economies. republican governors have great experience when they pursue tough policies and tough choices not for austerity sake. it is a prosperity agenda. >> reporter: a lot of people are talking about bobby jindal a rising star and possible candidate in the 2016, gregg. gregg: dan, the presidential raise is probably coming up in this meeting as well, right? >> reporter: it certainly is. there is a lot of hand-wringing, a lot of talk about why the gop, why mitt romney did not win at the presidential level this past election. there has been mostly complimentary talk about governor
's population gets older and needs more medical care, the number of doctors is dwindling and in nevada, the doctor shortage is becoming critical. some patients are waiting months to get an appointment. cnn's casey wian reports on what is becoming quickly a very national crisis. >> reporter: george hobs rheumatoid arthritis pain was manageable. he had a job until one day last year. >> all of a sudden, one morning when i woke up, it was like i thought i had a stroke or something. my feet, my knees, my hands, i couldn't get out of the bed. i wasn't able to even dress myself. >> reporter: he called his arthritis doctor, but the office was closed. hobs didn't know his doctor was semiretired, only seeing patients three days a week. >> i was told there is only five places to go in vegas. and i tried three other ones, and the waiting period was three to four months. >> reporter: a trip to the er provided little relief. >> three times in the last year where i couldn't get out of bed for two days, three days, i actually prayed that i wouldn't live. and that's for me was the low point. >> reporte
, nevada, and iowa. so how does this model work? >> so every poll that people read about goes into the model and sees the projection in some way. >> reporter: there might be 30 or 40 of them a day in this year's poll-happy universe. silver's model averaging all those polls and then factors in how well they've performed in past elections and he comes up with probabilities like gambling odds. >> florida, for example, we had romney with a 60% chance of winning. that's how often when you have a one-point lead in the average of polls you've wound up winning in the past. in ohio we have obama with about a 75% chance of winning because he has a larger lead so it's more likely to be enduring on election day itself. >> i'm projecting that you need to win 99 games in order to make it to the post office. >> reporter: think money ball, the book and film about how a geek used numbers to outdo the oakland a's scouts using their intuition to find undervalued baseball players who could win. in other words, the stat-heads versus the pundits again. nate silver started out as a baseball statisti
the early volt for republicans in north carolina, colorado, and looks good for democrats in iowa, nevada and ohio. though ohio is a little trekkie to get a sense of just yet. the president up by five, six points in that state according to most polls right now. it is good the engagement is high and enthusiasm is up there. >> just make sure your voice is heard at the polls. >> stand in the line, folks. here in new york the police charged a nanny in the deaths of the two young children in her care. ortega is recovering from self-inflicted stab wound and remains in the hospital under guard. that case certainly just chilled the nation a few days back. >> just tragic. to a dramatic crash caught on camera. amazingly everyone walks away without so much as a scratch. >> unbelievable. take a look at the freight train barrelling along a railroad track in utah as a water truck tries to get across. the truck is smashed to pieces but the two men inside are not hurt at all. james wood was recording the train for his 4-year-old son when the crash took place. he said he rushed to the truck, expecting to
he is talking to. the two interviews in iowa, colorado, nevada, washington, d.c. that will be virginia interview for him. same going on with the romney campaign. they are actively campaigning all the way up to the very end here. there is sense of optimism among the obama campaign. they say they have had small yet consistent leads in many battleground states. they think it will carry them through the night. they're putting the final touches what will be the election night party here at mccormick place, the convention center in downtown chicago. president obama will be here later this evening. they hope this party will turn into a celebration. we'll know in a few hours whether that is true or not or whether this will go on the next few days. back to you. lori:. tracy: rich is from new jersey. he has the skepticism about him. >> oh, yeah. tracy: i'm so skeptical. i think we have a week before we know. what do i know? >> i packed enough for about a week, tracy. brought a lot of ties with me. tracy: not just the sicilian thing. new jerseyians in general we're skepti
, virginia, colorado, nevada, those are states that used to be reliably conservative and seem to have gone into the, well, they all went into the obama category this time. we don't know about florida yet. you change those around, you have got a different president. what happened? >> well i think in large part it was the presence of the latino vote as a significant bloc, jon. i think this is part of the changing face of america in general and population. but in the specific context of last night's election it is the changing face of the american electorate. you take a state like florida, you know, used to be, you would think, it is cuban-americans. now as we heard, puerto ricans, people coming from all over latin america. they are not reliably republican voters. in fact, last night, cuban-americans went for romney but the rest of that latino population, way outnumbered them and went heavily for president obama. and you know this is reflected then in questions like, you know, which candidate cares about people like me? which candidate is going to reflect my interests, and for hispanics who w
las vegas, nevada. gentlemen, thank you very much. this is not the most serious story we have but it did go to court. that is why it is a legal story. >> well, if you're a possum, it is. >> and also if you're peta, first of all the owner has hosted the possum, in a town about hundred miles west of asheville in north carolina. and it involves trapping the possum in a cage and lowering it. now the judges seemed to not -- using a wild possum, the judge ordered them to release or kill the animal. that is the weird irony. so peta sued for the treatment of animals. it sounds funny, but there is a legal issue involved. >> i actually feel bad for the possum, i think the north carolina department of wildlife made up a permit so they could issue this to mr. logan. and i think the administrative law judge who wrote an 18-page opinion, among other things, patrick henry. was right. there is no right to capture or hold a wild animal. so at the end of the day no possum drop there unless the estate legislature changes the law, i don't think that is going to happen. >> who is timmy the guerill
are hard at work on self-driving models. and three states, california, nevada and florida, have already made self-driving vehicles legal as long as the human's sitting in the driver's seat in case of a emergency. that's a good idea. meanwhile, these cars could lose worker productivity. the average commuter spends 250 hours a year behind the wheel. or they could come in handy after you've had a couple cocktails. self-driving trucks could transform the trucking industry. picture long lines of self-driving 18-wheelers traveling down the highway just a few inches apart, no drivers, no stops for gas or food, it could boost fuel efficiency as much as 20%. we're going to need to keep driving ourselves though for a while longer. experts say the driverless cars should be more common in another ten to 15 years when the costs come down. here's the question, how would you feel about riding in a car that drives itself? go to cnn.com/caffertyfile, post a comment on my blog. or go to our post on the "the situation room" facebook page. i don't know if i'd trust a car to drive itself. >> me either. i wo
